Hey, I'm new to the Gluten Free living style. Recently I feel like I've been feeling like I need to get sick. So I was just wondering if anyone else feels like they are going to get sick/gag? Thanks for your help!

How long have you been on the diet? What are you eating? Do you keep a food diary (this helps keep track of what you eat in case there is something causing you issues)?

For a long while I used to get that sick feeling with any trace of cc. Then I used to get it when taking my supplements before bed. You know, the sweating feeling, the gagging, retching, too much saliva stuff. It seems to have gone away now.

Shadowicewolf I've probably been on the diet for 4 months now. I'm trying to eat a lot of meat and a lot of fresh fruits and veggies.

Mushroom. Thanks for the help

You're meat might be whats causing you to have those symptoms. I know it took me FOREVER to finally find chicken that would not make me sick.

As time goes by, you will find out what your sensitivity to gluten really is. A product labeled as "gluten free" means less than 20 ppm. Most celiacs can tolerate that amount. Some can not. They go totally non packaged food. Be patient in healing.

Reba, what kind of music do you like? and welcome to the forum.

. A product labeled as "gluten free" means less than 20 ppm.

In the US, there is no legal meaning for "Gluten Free". It can mean no gluten ingredients. It can mean the company tests for gluten. Some use tests as low as 5ppm. You would need to check the company's website or email or call them to find out for certain.

Even if a product is tested with a 20 ppm test, testing negative does not mean it has 19 ppm. It just means it has less than 20 ppm. It could have 0 or 2 ppm.

Thanks for expanding the meaning.

So, make sure you are getting your daily carbs in there as well.  If your carb intake gets too low, your body will let you know it.  I accidentally did this when I first went gluten-free and I felt very off and anxious.  No need to camp out on carbs but if you're having breakfast--a slice of gluten-free toast, with lunch try some "Nut-Thins" chips, and it may just help.

 

Your diagnosis is enough to make you feel sick by itself!  It's a lot to digest.  Take a deep breath, get that balanced gluten-free diet in, take it a day at a time and the habit will form before you know it and it will all become second hand...

 

As for alternative music...  I can't say much because thats what I listen too.  ALT Nation on Sirius rocks.

I know what you mean. I've been gluten free for a month now and I'm still having lots of acid/burps/nausea. Hoping that will go away with time. Interesting about the carbs too...I may try to add more to my diet and see what happens.

I love country by the way :)

    • So I've been glutened....
      That sounds like a plan JMG.  If things aren't working then make a change, hopefully a positive change.  It seems to me we have more noticeable symptoms sometimes after being gluten-free a while.  I made a mistake last night and ate some tuna canned in water.  It definitely wasn't boring.  I usually have more sense than to eat tuna canned in water but screwed up last night.  They canned  it in broth of some sort.  Ingredients say vegetable broth and soy.  Yuck, not good for me.  It sure tasted good though, just ouch.  I am not saying it had gluten in it, but it does have soy and some kind of unnamed veggie monsters.  So it could be soy, or carrots or some other disgusting vegetable that got me.   Not all celiacs have additional food intolerances beyond gluten, but some do.  My gut could testify to that.  Anyway, if you have bloating, cut out all carbs and sugar for starters.  And try peppermint tea or Altoids.  Over here we have something called Pepto Bismol that helps soothe gut pain and another neat thing called aspirin.  And gluten-free beer as needed.  
    • Gluten free apparently not helping entirely
      Jean, Maybe your boss can find you a job in the office for a while?  It's worth asking maybe? It's not easy being on constant travel with celiac disease but it can be done.  Your effort to find safe food is going to be harder than most but it is not impossible.  But if you can't manage it you should really think about getting a non-travel job.  Your boss may be willing to work with you on an office position, even if it's temporary.  That would give you some time to look for a local job and also eat a safer diet. It's really up to you to control your diet and make sure it is safe.  If you can't figure out how to  do that while traveling you owe it to yourself to figure a way out of the travel. Celiac disease isn't always fun and games.  Not always.   I hope you find a way to improve your circumstances.
    • Gluten Free baby food pouches?
      Anyone know of any baby food pouches that are gluten free?  We love to have them on the go for our kids (not just baby), but I have no idea which ones to get now!  We used to get Meijer brand and Plum.   Thanks!
    • gluten free, oat free, egg free breakfast ideas needed for 6 year old
      Thanks for everyone's suggestions!  I think I felt at a loss when we had to cut oats- we used to do cheerios and oatmeal regularly and now those are out.  She has a sensitivity to oats as well as wheat/barley/rye. 
    • So I've been glutened....
      The bloating has, if anything, got worse. It seems better when I'm lay down, when I stand it gets worse. Although the lymph swelling has gone down so maybe I'm through the worst. Hope so anyway... I never used to get a great deal of GI symptoms. Certainly not so serious as the other stuff. It's making me wonder if I just react differently now having been gluten-free for some time. I've noticed lot's of you saying that reactions seem to change over time. Of course its possible the other stuff was masking the GI things. I almost dont trust my memory of those times anymore because a whole chunk of my life seems to have been lived through a brain fog. Tomorrow I'm thinking of going away for a couple of days, maybe just taking some ultra simple food with me so I can try and settle my stomach by boring it into submission

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
